What’s the Latest on North Korea?

What’s happening in North Korea?

President Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un continue to threaten each other; meanwhile, their respective militaries are gearing up. The U.S. conducted a joint military exercise with South Korea on Tuesday, sending two American combat bombers to fly over the Korean peninsula alongside two South Korean fighter jets. North Korea has done its homework with six nuclear tests as well as two missiles launched over Japan.

Are we preparing for war?  

It’s not looking good. White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders confirmed on Friday that North Korea is an “issue,” while Trump tweeted ominously over the weekend about the hermit regime, saying that diplomacy hasn’t helped the North Korea situation and “only one thing will work.”

Glenn’s take:

We’re so used to watching Trump and Kim spar back and forth that “it’s easy to miss just how close to war we get every single day,” Glenn said. But don’t be fooled by how “routine” it feels. North Korea is a threat.

GLENN: Strategic bombers were flying over South Korea yesterday. Two HEP B1 lancers flanked by Japanese and South Korean fire jets buzzed North Korea in yet another show of force yesterday. Perhaps the weirdest thing about all of this is how routine all of this is beginning to feel.

This wasn't an elaborate air show, or even a recon mission to take pictures. This was a mission to deter against nuclear war.

Are we even following this anymore? The tough talk and the saber rattling between Kim Jong-un and President Trump have become so common, it's easy to miss just how close to war we literally get every single day.

Yesterday, take this, for example. It was the 72nd anniversary of the founding of North Korea's whirling workers HEP party. Kim Jong-un typically uses these holidays to have, you know, those big, you know, parades where, hey, look at all of our cool missiles. And, look, we can get everybody to wear a hat. And it will spell out something like, happy anniversary to us. But he also uses it for nuclear missile tests. And the last threat we heard was a possible hydrogen bomb test over the Pacific.

Now, Trump has set the stage just last week when he said, we're at the calm before the storm.

And everybody began to wonder, what does that mean, Mr. President?

Friday, the press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, she confirmed that there were world issues. And that world issue, namely, was North Korea. Over the weekend, Trump doubled down and gave an ominous tweet. He said, you know, democracy hadn't worked for 25 years. And that, quote, only one thing will work.

So now, early yesterday morning, he called for a meeting with the Defense Secretary Mattis and Secretary of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. And they discussed, quote, a range of options to respond militarily to North Korea aggression.

Now, they've had these planning sessions 100 times since the crisis began.

Why did they pick Tuesday morning for another one? And then just a few hours later, B1 HEP bombers and Japanese and South Korean fighter jets are flying over the Korean peninsula.

Was it a show of force, or are we getting close to waiting for an attack order?

The threat of war with North Korea is greater than it has been in 50 years. And Kim Jong-un apparently got the message yesterday and backed down.

Will he continue to back down? Next time.

4 QUESTIONS the DHS must answer regarding their domestic ‘terror’ warning

The DHS recently released a rare terror bulletin, warning Americans of an increasing threat: domestic extremists. But if the Biden administration believes there's a grave danger to the American people, WHY are they not providing us with the information we need to protect ourselves? Or is it all due to politics? Glenn has four questions he believes our officials in DC must answer. For example, WHY are the Capitol rioters being treated like prisoners at Guantanamo?

Big Tech now censors the stories of WW2 VETS too?

Rishi Sharma, founder of Heroes of the Second World War, has spent years interviewing as many World War II veterans that he can. His life passion, he says, is making sure these heroes' stories are recorded and preserved so future generations will never forget their sacrifices. But — perhaps unsurprisingly — Big Tech now stands in the way. Rishi describes to Glenn alleged censorship he believes his YouTube page — which contains many of these WW2 vets' stories — has experienced in the last year. "Makeup tutorials get a billon views, but the men who fought for our freedom...why can't they get the same attention?"

Glenn Beck CALLS OUT companies working with China as HORRIFIC new details emerge about concentration camps

An upcoming book, "The Chief Witness: Escape from China's Modern-Day Concentration Camps," details one woman's "fight to survive" inside one of China's 380 unspeakably horrific concentration camps.

On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" this week, Glenn asked why, after seeing horrors like this in history before, aren't we taking acting to stop this? Companies like Apple, Google, and Facebook not only continue to work with China, but have sometimes even given the Chinese Communist Party the tools it needs to spy on its people.

Glenn read an excerpt from the book in which co-author Sayragul Sauytbay describes the concentration camp where she was incarcerated for the "crime" of being one of the China's ethnic minorities and the shocking details of what she witnessed and experienced as a prisoner.

"I can't tell you how disgusted I am. ... It means nothing to say 'never forget' if you won't talk about the things that lead to the Holocaust. 'Never forget' doesn't mean just remember their names and remember what happened, but look at the seeds that are being planted today so we don't go down that road," Glenn said after reading the disturbing details.

"How do you make sure that that doesn't happen, if you won't talk about the seeds that are being planted? It's too late when the tree has its vines all around your neck. It's too late. Silence in the face of evil, is evil itself. Not to stand, is to stand. The world is becoming more and more deaf to evil. It is all becoming perverted. What is happening in China is evil, and I don't care if it's Disney, or Apple, or Facebook, or anybody else that is doing business in China ... you're part of the problem," he went on to say.

"We must stand together ... to stand for the Jewish people. To stand for the Chinese Uighurs. To stand against another coming Holocaust, wherever it might happen in the world. To stand against this evil of critical race theory. It is evil."

The New War on Terror: Innocent Until Proven Conservative

The Left is gearing up to label anyone and everyone who doesn't bend the knee to their radical ideas as a threat to the nation, and they're using the January 6th Capitol riot to do so. That's when "innocent until proven conservative" started, and the Democrats' new 9/11-style January 6th Commission will solidify it.

Since the Capitol riot, the Biden administration has shown little transparency while arresting and intimidating hundreds and insisting that "right-wing terror" is on the rise. But is there ANY evidence to back up what the government is now doing to its own citizens?

On this week's Glenn TV special, Glenn Beck asks the questions that the corporate media won't and lays out why this may only be the beginning as private companies prepare to help the government spy on YOU. And Sen. Rand Paul joins to detail how Republicans in Congress are standing against the Democrats' new Jan. 6th Commission.
